their service now. at least 28 countries, including great britain, australia, canada, the netherlands, and israel, allow open service by lesbian and gay troops. we have no greater allies than great britain, australia, canada, and israel, and none of these countries, not one, reports morale or recruitment problems. at least nine of these countries have deployed their forces alongside american troops in operation iraqi freedom, and at least 12 of these nations are allowing open service and are currently fighting alongside u.s. troops in afghanistan. there's a cost involved in our current policy. according to a 2005 g.a.o. report, american taxpayers spend more than $30 million each year to train replacement for gay troops discharged under the don't ask, don't policy. the total costs reported since the statute was implemented, according to g.a.o., has been nearly $200 million and that doesn't count the administrative and legal costs associated with investigations and hearings. the military schooling of gay troops, such as pilot training and linguist training. we are losing highly-skilled
running for office. it is unheard of in great britain or canada for any party to ever think about changing the law to keep its competition off the bell. and the britain anyone can get on about -- to keep them off the ballot in this country. in canada but it only takes 100 signatures. it does not occur to people in most countries that is legitimate for two parties to get together and keep competition off the ballot. host: for those who tried to keep the parties off the ballots, what is the main reasoning? guest: it depends on whether they are talking honestly or not. if you want an example of an honest comment, i was at a georgia state legislative hearing once and a legislator on the elections committee said, i don't want no damn libertarian running against me. i appreciated that. when the law came before judges, the judges will not say something like that. they constantly tell us we are in danger of overcrowded ballots that will cause the utter confusion. the truth is, we suffer from under-crowded ballots. i have been tracking state legislative candidacies for 20 years. every election year
'll be surprised at how well the economy responds. now, canada did this in the 1990's. they are talking about it today in germany. there are examples we can look to to say, yes, we can give confidence to people, once we give them assurances that we will behave responsibly as leadership. so that is the way to do it in my opinion. failure to do it means we model along and we will have much slower growth. >> ok. our next question will address the sustainability of the american economy. the housing bubble is not the first and only bubble our economy has seen. government into many instances has been using a device by corporations to pass favorable laws that benefits each industry respectively. can the united states economy and tax base sustain the negligent behavior of some lawmakers who did not fully understand the economic consequences of the laws they pass and may be unaware of the law's effects on local communities resulting in economic disaster? >> the answer is, yes it can. it has in the past, and it will atgain. i have long said, and i am not in politics in that sense at all, but here is my
and e.u. on exchange of information. we work very closely with canada and mexico, our two neighbors. and so there is a huge amount of interaction at the international level but all designed to minimize the risk that a terrorist could either enter the united states or be plotting somewhere else to injure u.s. interests. >> senator mueller. >> senator, we've realized for a number of years, certainly before my time, that our success is in large part dependent on working with our counterparts overseas. we have over 60 legal offices in embassies around the world which we use as liaisons to our counterparts. we have since the 1970's a national academy in which we've brought in state and local law enforcement for a 10-week period for training. we have for many years included our foreign counterparts, whether it be from iraq or pakistan or afghanistan as part of those classes in an effort to educate persons as to what the f.b.i. does but also how the f.b.i. does it and what we do not do. in those relatively small ways but i think important ways we have developed persons that provide the rel

about the kids, the parents and you talk about the educators. one such educationor is jeffrey canada. let's take a look at a clip with jeffrey and then i want to ask you about him. >> i was like, superman -- su r superman is not real. she thought i was crying because there was no one coming with enough power to save us. kids look at the world and make certain predictions based on the evidence they're receiving from their peers, parents and teachers. from their sper perspective, the world is a heartless, co cold-blooded place because they realize they've been given the short end of the stick and don't know why. >> he is dynamic, so well spoken. why did you choose him in particular as a strong character for your film? >> he has done amazing things. he has literally proven by taking over 97 square blocks in harlem and hiring and training and cultivating great teachers, that every kid can learn. a long time ago, we used to say if the problems of the nabld are the home and all these are insurmountable, we're going to lose of these schools. he says if they're not going to use that as an e
study out of canada found women are quicker with an apology than men but not for the reasons you might think. the fascinating part of the study is that they actually showed just random scenarios and of those scenarios, women perceived more of them needing an apology. so, it's not that men don't want to apologize, it's just that they look at a situation, they don't see it as apology-worthy, whereas women do. >> reporter: hear that, ladies? it's not that your man atrade to poll geez, he just doesn't know when he needs to. >> women are a lot more considerate than men. they are always worried about offending their friends or their significant others so they're much more apt to apologize for things that would never bother a guy. >> reporter: you are apologizing because you mean it or to placate her? >> because i mean it. >> reporter: while it may be difficult for men to realize they're in the wrong, getting into the right is actually pretty easy. >> some men don't apologize enough. i don't see what the big deal is. if it is going to quell a situation and make everything okay, just say those

with the additional actions that congress has taken and the european union, japan, south korea, canada, australia, and others have taken, is that iran is now under more economic pressure than ever before. it is feeling that pressure. the indications are multiple and varied. and now iran is having to factor this new pressure in to its calculations. we remain ready and willing to engage at the negotiating table. but iran has to be prepared to resolve legitimate concerns about the program in a serious way and peacefully. and that's a major accomplishment in the last year. >> would it help that the president of the united states sat down with the president of iran who's in new york right now, the president's here in new york or on the way. would it help for the two of them to sit down? >> i don't think, wolf, a meeting at the head of state level makes any sense absent iran very seriously. being willing to give up the nuclear program through negotiations. we're part of a group called the p-5 plus one. the permanent members of the security council plus germany. through the shared envoy, we reiterated,
and canada are encountered numerous i e d's or improvised -- helmand and kandahar encounter numerous improvised explosive devices. of the question is are these fatalities from roadside dime -- roadside bombs assigned the u.s. is making inroads in places they previously did not have success. a brigadier who commands ground forces and helmand province says -- taliban fighters suffered submitting casualties when they battle coalition troops. then they peppered the fields and orchards with ied's during the night. when that happens, the taliban tend to fall back, and such minefields are a last-ditch effort to hold off defeat, they say. the enemy would be glad to box off and put an area of mine field all the way around us. we will get back to your calls in a moment.

had no idea what was really going on in canada are -- in kandahar. that was a big alarm. there was a very vigorous and critique of our intelligence work in afghanistan last january raising these same questions. the disturbing thing was that he was there for eight years and we do not know that much more about the people of afghanistan or that much more about the power brokers than we did when we first went into afghanistan in 2002. we wrote this really gloomy report and we did not count on bob woodward publishing it in "the washington post." but he did. this change to the debate in afghanistan in the united states to a degree, combined with some other unfortunate news. the afghan presidential election in august-september 2009. those two events contributed to the white house reviewing or going back over their strategy for afghanistan. whenever you do a strategic plan, used her with a list of planning assumptions. if any of the internet to be wrong -- when every do a strategic plan, you start out with a list of planning assumptions. if any of them turn out to be wrong, then
my -- the gingrich, the howard dean canada. we both like ideas, he is a medical doctor. i'm a historian. we like debating. i think part of us is fund -- i have a similar relationship with robert reischauer. we like bouncing things off of each other like ideas. >> your president in 2013. explain how you would structure the white house. which you surround yourself with? what kind of administration would you want to have? >> that's a very subtle and important question. i've gone back, reading a lot about lincoln. he comes into a very tiny government and has to fight the civil war. his background as an administrator is that he has been all lawyer. lincoln had the advantage that he was the only true genius to was the president and his learning curve was unbelievable. it is clear that government these days is dysfunctional. it does not work. it starts with your possession of the white house. i will tell you one story that bothers me. i was very fortunate to spend 20 years in the legislative branch. the bush administration was very generous and allowed me to work as a volunteer i
states, but not exclusive of other population. we imagined it would look a bit like canada and the united states, france and germany, where people would be able to cross the border. the israelis could be able to shop in palestinian areas, palestinians coming over to the israeli side -- and it has been repeated recently -- palestinians are not opposed to jews living in a palestinian state. we recognize the jewish people have religious and historic ties that will be the palestinian state. there is no objection to the jews living in the palestinian state. are they going to live in there as a palestinian citizen, as israeli citizens, under what framework? this vision of two states with multi-ethnic population is moving back and forth, this has taken a beating since i was in negotiations. over the course of all the violence that has taken recently, specifically in israel, over two exclusive populations. i think there needs to be a conclusion in a two state solution that allows both jews and palestinians to have access to both countries. the more interaction there will be, the more peace will b

workers were from canada, massachusetts, new york, international students running the hotels. >> on one part of that issue, we are a nation, and vermonters, i know are working in massachusetts and connecticut and that's what happens. contractors get a job and bring in their own people. i will tell you an issue we have with that that does concern me very much. immigration in this couldn't vi a serious issue and we have to deal with it in a comprehensive way. i voted against the immigration bill that came up last time primarily for one reason. you touched on that reason. we have programs called guest workers programs. guest workers programs are, a company says, we need a certain type of employee. and we can't find that employee in the united states. therefore we have to go to warsaw or someplace else. high tech companies use this for engineers and scientists. resort areas use it for a variety of reasons. you will be shocked to know, some years ago, here in the state of vermont, apparently we do not have people who can be ski instructors. did you know that? we just don't have enough people
, that was not happening. all these efforts combined will culminate at the acao summit in montreal, canada up where we hope to make our work for strengthening international standards for aviation security into an actual resolution the international community through acao and applicable to the entire system. it is important to note that in addition to acao the airline industry and the carriers themselves have been with us every step of the way. we have collaborated closely with the united states and international airline and airport straight associations -- trade associations and airline ceo's, shortly after christmas day, to explain what security enhancements needed to go in place immediately, but what we were striving for in the following weeks. i personally met with all of these leaders, and i also met with the heads of the international air travel association, and also with the ata. they have voiced strong support for the coordinated international approach that we have begun and that will be expressed, we hope, this fall at the acao general assembly. through that, it is clear that our potential for coll

canada and the california senate race. >> congress returns from break next week. here is a look at some of our prime time programming after obama's speech monday. watch town hall meetings with bernie sanders. they both talked about health care. >> i believe the plan is for this plan to fail. i know that this plan will fail. health insurance is going to be way too high. you will create adverse selection. anybody that is young and healthy, you will pay the fund in 2014 rather than spend $7,000 or $8,000. if you get sick, they have to cover you. it does not rise to $795 in 2016. what is going to happen? the healthy young people will not be in the insurance pool. what is cora to happen to the people over 40 who were sick question-what is going to happen to the people over 40 who are sick? alternately, the blanket to revert back and tell you that insurance does not work. -- they want it to refer back and tell you that insurance does not work. >> in my view, if we are serious about having a cost-effective, high-quality health care system which guarantees health care to every man and woman and
